- "Ah, don't listen to an old gogi like me."
Gogi was a title in the Mandalorian culture. Bestowed upon an elderly soldier often seen as past their fighting prime, but still in possession of valuable experience, a gogi served as a trainer and overseer of Mandalorian special forces. It was within the gogi's authority to determine when and where a warrior under their tutelage traveled, and could recall their warriors if they were needed by the Mandalorian army. Mandalorians who trained under a gogi often remember their mentor and the experience fondly, and many subsequently looked forward to becoming a gogi themselves.
By the time of the civil war between the Galactic Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic, the veteran Mandalorian mercenary Teroch was a gogi living on the Outer Rim world of Vlemoth Port, where he resided in the enclave of Arumorut.
